REQUEST FOR COMMUNITY INPUT

DISTRICT SUPPORT SERVICES CENTER: PDC/Boardroom

2560 SKYWAY DRIVE SANTA MARIA, CA 93455

SUBJECT: NEW SUPERINTENDENT

The Board of Trustees of the Santa Maria Joint Union High School District is in the process of conducting a Superintendent Search for purposes of hiring the District’s next Superintendent. Fred Van Leuven and David Verdugo of Leadership Associates were selected to advise the Board in this important process. They will be in our district from August 27 to August 29 to facilitate several sessions with various groups within our district’s community to receive input about the desired qualities and characteristics of the next Superintendent. This input will be a valuable contribution to the recruitment and selection process.

The Board is soliciting responses to the following questions:

1. What personal and professional qualities for an incoming superintendent will be a match for the Santa Maria Joint Union High School District?

2. What are the strengths of the District, and what are the challenges you see for the District in the coming years?

In addition to the various sessions, the District will be hosting an Evening Open Forum, which is open to all the public. No appointment is necessary to participate. This Open Forum is an opportunity for the public to provide input and to hear more about the search process. The Open Forum will be held on Tuesday, August 27, 2019 at 5:30 p.m.

Additionally, an online survey is available on the District’s website from August 7, 2019 to August 30, 2019. You may access the survey by visiting the District’s website at: www.smjuhsd.k12.ca.us.

If you are not able to access the online survey, you may forward your written responses to these two questions to: Becky Banning Executive Assistant, Leadership Associates bbanning@leadershipassociates.org You may also request to speak with a consultant by sending an email to the address above.
